New York City has quickly become one of the main battlegrounds between those who favor law and order and those who want to unleash chaos on the streets.
In recent weeks, a number of protests have kicked off where agitators have taken advantage of the mayhem caused by the death of George Floyd to go out and rampage.
Patriotic Americans have responded in kind with peaceful demonstrations standing behind law enforcement who are under constant siege by the media and radical activists.
One would think that Republicans, people who are part of a party that claims to be in favor of law and order, would be completely on the same page when it comes to supporting law enforcement.
However, one Republican leader has cowered in the face of adversity. Joel Acevedo, the President of the Brooklyn Young Republican Club decided to sit on the sidelines.
“Good police do not need defending,” Acevedo told the New York Times. “You can be pro-police and still support accountability to a police system that perpetuates inequities in Black communities. They’re not mutually exclusive.”
For his milquetoast statement and refusal to participate in a pro-police rally, Acevedo was immediately criticized by Gavin Wax, the President of the New York Young Republican Club.

Wax tweeted, “Hey @KingsCountyGOP do you support this sort-of garbage? Why is your officially chartered Young Republican org anti-Police? Are you guys asleep at the wheel? Anyone home? You were happy to attack my club months ago but now your YR club won’t back the blue? Get it together.”
Hey @KingsCountyGOP do you support this sort-of garbage?
Why is your officially chartered Young Republican org anti-Police?
Are you guys asleep at the wheel? Anyone home?
You were happy to attack my club months ago but now your YR club won't back the blue?

BLP reached out to Wax, who offered his take on the situation:
The Brooklyn Young Republican Club continues to demonstrate that they are nothing more than a leftist Democrat front operation attempting to erode Republican institutions in New York. From their support of open borders, to nationalized healthcare, to universal basic income, and now their anti-Police rhetoric, it is clear that their viewpoints goes far beyond being simply anti-Trump. They do not represent Republicans in Brooklyn or anywhere for that matter, their lack of real membership or attendance at events shows how their messaging is even too radical for Lincoln Project cronies. We are calling on the Brooklyn GOP and the Association of New York Young Republican Clubs to not only condemn and censure the Brooklyn Young Republicans but terminate their charter and allow real Young Republicans to form a club that truly represents the conservative movement.
In a time when chaos is only growing, the Right needs resolute figures. Those who are passive will be useless in the inevitable conflict between the Right and the radical Left.
Ohio Republican Rob Portman Announces that He Won’t Be Seeking Re-Election
America first nationalists must capitalize on this opening in the senate.
On January 25, 2021, Ohio Senator Rob Portman announced that he will not be seeking re-election in 2022. The 2022 election cycle will be a critical mid-term cycle which will determine what course the Republican Party will take in the wake of Trump’s defeat.
According to a report at The Epoch Times, Portman cited “partisan gridlock in Congress and political polarization” as his main reasons for leaving the Senate.
“I feel fortunate to have been entrusted by the people of Ohio to represent them in the U.S. Senate. Today, I am announcing that I have made a decision not to run again in 2022,” Portman said in a statement.
The Republican senator continued, “I don’t think any Senate office has been more successful in getting things done, but honestly, it has gotten harder and harder to break through the partisan gridlock and make progress on substantive policy, and that has contributed to my decision.”
In Portman’s view, the United States has become “increasingly polarized where members of both parties are being pushed further to the right and further to the left, and that means too few people who are actively looking to find common ground.” Portman also contended that “This is not a new phenomenon, of course, but a problem that has gotten worse over the past few decades.” He concluded by stating that “This is a tough time to be in public service.”
Portman accompanies his colleagues Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey and North Carolina Senator Richard Burr in retiring from office. Portman’s presence won’t be missed. He voted for the Iraq War and even betrayed President Trump by voting against his national emergency declaration at the border. To add insult to injury, Portman has routinely talked smack about President Trump behind his back.
2022 is shaping up to be an interesting year for Republicans with numerous seats in play. With regards to open seats, there will be unique opportunities for America First nationalists to shine in. Ohio is ground zero for the emerging populist realignment taking place in America. Once a state that could go either way during a given election cycle, Ohio is now a safe Republican state.
America First nationalists should milk this opening for what it’s worth and place a staunch nationalist to run for the open GOP seat in 2022. This will be the first midterm where populists can begin purging the party of neocons and other establishment types.
